LaneyAt a time when we no longer trust our fellow citizens, the heartbreaking story of several thousand turning out to grant the dying wish of a terminally ill little girl serves as an inspiration in restoring our faith in humanity.

Carolers filled the streets outside the home of 8-year-old Delaney Walker, of West Reading, Pa., Saturday night to help make one of her final wishes come true.

Affectionately called “Laney,” the little girl was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and has days to live, if not weeks, Fox News reported.

According to the report, the family has been busy the last few weeks trying to grant as many of Laney’s wishes as possible. On Friday, her eighth birthday, she videochatted with singer Taylor Swift, a native of nearby Wyomissing, Pa.

And then thousands showed up Saturday to sing Christmas carols to Laney — the repertoire included “Jingle Bells,” “Silent Night,” and “Joy to the World.”

On her “Team Laney” Facebook page, family members posted a picture of Laney giving two thumbs up, with the text, “I can hear you now!!! Love you!”
